It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce to you that the DSM Board has hired the second Executive Director for the Dedham School of Music. We would like to introduce you to Amy Fichera, who officially began her tenure on August 22, 2016.
Amy comes to us as a voice major, teacher, performer, businesswoman and entrepreneur. Throughout her interviews, she demonstrated understanding, sensitivity, and an admiration of DSM's history, while presenting interesting ideas on how she will sustain DSM and lead its growth moving forward. With her strong professional background in business development and her experience as a teacher and performer, the Board is confident that Amy will lead DSM to the next level of providing music education, access and appreciation for our community.
I would also like to take this time to publicly thank Karl Orvik for serving as our Interim Executive Director for the last several weeks. He did an outstanding job over the summer and we are grateful for his leadership, guidance and flexibility to us during this time of transition.
Our fall semester begins on Monday, September 19. If you have not yet registered, please do so as soon as possible. (Click here to access the registration form.)
We look forward to seeing everyone this fall as we begin a new era at the Dedham School of Music!
